The Three Biggest Mistakes When Hiring A Wedding Photographer

There’s a lot to plan in any wedding in Northern Ireland, and it can get a bit overwhelming. It might be tempting to take the first recommendation you get for a wedding photographer in Belfast and be done with it. However, make sure you aren’t making a mistake that will cost you.

Read on for the three most common mistakes couples make when ordering wedding photography packages in Northern Ireland.

Choosing An Annoying Belfast Photographer

As important as it is to choose a skilled photographer with an impressive portfolio, it’s important not to overlook the personal aspect. Keep in mind that you are essentially inviting your photographer to your wedding, not only as a guest, but to boss people around!

This is strictly a personal issue. Even if someone you know had a great time with a photographer, sometimes certain people just rub each other the wrong way. If a photographer strikes you as abrasive, controlling, or annoying, then keep looking. A photographer who cracks bad jokes and orders people around can have a big negative impact on a wedding celebration, even if the prints are great!

Prioritizing More Physical Products Over Better Pictures

Planning a wedding on a budget is tough, and the cost of the pictures is going to be a big part of that. Wedding photography can be expensive, and a big part of that cost can be from printed photos, albums, and other physical records of your wedding day. However, the quality and quantity of these amenities should be hugely secondary to getting good photos in the first place!

Settling for a second rate photographer in order to be able to afford several physical albums is a mistake. Any wedding photographer will provide you with digital versions of their photos, which means that you can print them out later for a fraction of the cost. Getting a nice bound album from the original photographer is not important compared to getting quality photos.

If your budget is tight, forget about physical prints at all for a while! When your wallet has recovered from the wedding, you’ll be able to go to a print shop with the digital copies and get whatever fancy wedding memorabilia that you wanted initially, and probably at a lower cost than the photographer would charge. Spend your entire photography budget on a talented photographer.

Expecting Amazing Photos From Amateur Photographers

It’s a common mistake to hire someone you know, maybe a photography student in the family, to take wedding photos and expect stunning results. It is nice to throw a bone to an aspiring professional, but keep in mind that this is your one wedding day, and you may not get what you want from somebody who is inexperienced.

Professional photographers in Northern Ireland with years of experience charge more for a reason. The general rule of thumb, as in most things, is that you get what you pay for in wedding photography. Hire a professional if you want to be sure to have pictures that you can smile at in twenty years.

One of my favourite places to eat is the Causeway Hotel at the Giant’s Causeway, County Antrim. After an exhilarating walk around the causeway and taking in, the appetite building, fresh, sea air, you get a great meal here.

Wash it down with a cold pint of Guinness!

Recently I tried a new beer that has come to Northern Ireland. It’s full title is Peroni Nastro Azzurro, but most people know it as just Peroni. This beer was an instant hit with me. It’s all I drink at present when I go out anywhere.

It has a really nice mediterranean flavour to it that reminds me of being on holiday. I normally drink Coors Light, but this beer has a totally refreshing taste.

The first time I came across this beer was last week when I went out for Pizza. My wife and I found a great little Italian restaurant on Botanic Ave called Carlito’s (Use the search bar above to find website) whom are a client of my Belfast SEO services at Let’sBuzzMedia.com. I saw someone with the Peroni as I was going in and decided to try one. It was on draught and came in a tall, frosted pint glass. Great looking and great flavour. Totally recommended!

Northern Ireland Transport

Apart from the places to see, things to do, eating out, etc. I haven’t told you how you are going to be getting around these beautiful sites. My excellent transport guide presents many different ways to get around these top tourist attractions.

You can tour by bus, hire car, train or even walk. It’s up to you. Learn more about these various methods in the getting around guide. Incidentally, if you are hiring a car, make sure you have car insurance.

Last, but not least, is another important point to note when planning your trip to Northern Ireland. Don’t forget to book your travel insurance. Annual travel insurance is often the best value. Don’t let something trivial like losing your suitcase or baggage ruin your trip.

Take advantage of competitive prices and comprehensive cover from a good holiday insurance provider before you travel.
